Madras Fabrics

Are you familiar with Madras fabrics?

Madras Fabric

Madras is a lightweight cotton fabric with typically patterned texture and plaid design, used primarily for summer clothing—pants, shorts, dresses and jackets. The fabric takes its name from the former English name of the city of Chennai, India. This cloth also was identified by the colloquial name, “Madrasi checks.”
